Hi! I'm new too- I live in San Diego. The surf fly-fishing is excellent all up and down the coast.
This may turn out to be a great resource, this forum, but due to lack of traffic I find myself not coming here much...may I suggest http://www.fliflicker.com/
The "M-Board" is a forum, a few members who post regularly. You'll probably find a lot of good info there.
halibut, corbina, various perch, sharks, etc. are reasonable to expect in your area.
Unfortunately I am on the east coast and can't give any advice.
The forum is a bit slow right now, but it's still in it's juvenile stages working out the bugs and adding new features. We now have a couple of members that check and post daily and hope to see more of this in the near future. The magazines the forum is under are great ones so I don't see any reason for this forum to flop, it will just take time.
Well I'll stick with it, I know the exerience of partaking in a new board when it takes off like wildfire. It's a good thing!
I'll be fishing beaches north of La Jolla tomorrow and I'll be sure to post a report regardless of the outcome.
Thanks and you too, putting this together is no small effort.
I can't promise a fishy picture, but I do promise a report!
new member here from los angeles also, checkn out the boards....
Hi. I'm new to this forum too. I usually fish out of Long Beach CA along the breakwater by Queens Gate. I usually catch Bass, Rockfish and an occasional Barracuda or Halibut in that area. I finally just got another boat after being boatless for the last couple years. I'm planning to go out Labor Day weekend.
newbie here as well anyone want to get out fishing let me know
I lived in Manhattan, Hermosa and Redondo and the fish I always went after was the corbina. They eat soft-shelled sand crabs and they’re very picky. I doubt you’d have much luck with a fly. I used 8# test spinning gear because you have to be able to feel them take the bait as they aren’t very aggressive feeders. Then once you have one on the hook, you have to allow the waves to bring them in or you’ll break off.
